PlayStation Around the Web: What We Read

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Jan 31, 2010 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Pretty deep reading list this week, including some nice nuggets about game updates, as well as GTA Episodes from Liberty City coming your way.

If you can take a break from this busy gaming season (feels more like October than the end of January), see if you can’t add something to our list in the comments. See you online!

Hello Jeff, I was wondering if you guys could create/add a Heavy Rain or God of War III countdown meter like the good old days? ;-)

Killzone 2, inFAMOUS, and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves countdown meters really got me pumped up… Since then, I haven’t seen any other.

    The truth is, we\’re working on some redesign elements of the Blog, and we don\’t wanna make them twice. That being said, we may just go ahead and throw a GoWIII countdown on there since so many people have asked.

Thats good news about the GTAIV DLC. Like a lot of people, I was pretty angry that it was 360 only. So angry that I didn’t even start playing GTAIV until recently. Maybe now, by the time I finish the game, the DLC will be out.

Hey Jeff, do you know if Insomniac is planning to reveal their new game anytime soon?

Jeff, can we get a GOW3 countdown here on the blog like you guys had with Uncharted 2? That really helps time go by quicker.

Question for Jeff!

Can we see or expect Rockstar to appear in the blog anytime soon? Maybe to explain if there is gonna be any differences for Gta IV DLC for the PS3/PC version or bring any news about LA Noire or Agent?

I didn’t get Gta IV but I’m thinking of getting it due to this announcement but it would be cool if Rockstar would just release all of it on one blu ray disc like a Goty edition.

Where are the WKC ad’s Jeff? Sony needs to market this game because its one hell of a game. Please Sony, don’t let this game suffer the same fair as the other Sony games such as Killzone 2 and inFamouse with your lack of marketing.

+ dragonmagician on January 31st, 2010 at 5:52 pm said:

WKC this week (finally). GOTY for me…so far.

Feels like this game can sell a lot if people know more about the features (like online), but it doesn’t look like there will be too much ads for this game.

Hey Jeff, tell me what you think about this idea. If it’s good enough can you pass it up to the guys in charge. Anywhere here it is:

I’m thinking that since playstation has introduced these digital comic readers if we can get something in the likes of magazine readers. I would like for their to be an option to subscribe to the official Playstation Magaine on the playstation store. So that we have the option to read the magazine on our HDTV.

Thanks!

    Well, it\’s certainly an interesting idea. I think, with Qore, that you have something of a video magazine.

    Perhaps, with the ascendance or e-readers, we\’ll see more variations on the typical printed magazine.

I think that all these is great but one thing that ps3 has NOT fixed is changing PSN IDs or let us log in to the old account with a new one and be able to lick the 2 and replace it that way ( it’s just an idea ),i have always had a ps3 since the fist that comed out and always been rally good at fixing their problems but now it’s taking a little to long and on top of it on Xbox 360 you can change it at a cost of about 6.00 dollars and i am sinceraly considering just giving up on ps3 and got to my 360 and i know a lot of ps3 owner out there are in the same boat and have a 360 2 i say these so that it can be fixed before every one like me gives up on ps3

@Jeff Rubenstein in response to #20

You know he is talking about Final Fantasy “VERSUS” XIII right?

Just hoping you didn’t misunderstand him because nobody cares about Final Fantasy XIII as the import reviews basically said it was a mediocre game/flop. We want FFvs13 news (you know, the GOOD one).

Hi Jeff.

Some days ago I posted here about me having difficulties displaying this site after you said that there was a migration to new servers. Mainly the problem was that this site was taking too long to properly display, and some times, just displays the “404 not found page” and prior to the servers roll over, I didnt had any problem at all.

Well, I can see that is improving or something because is taking less time than before, but still continues to take some time(2 o 3 minutes to properly display).

Like I said before, I’m a network Engineer, I say this, because I know this is not a problem of my local network or even my INTERNET connection, I know what i’m talking about.

Just want to let you know since you told us on another post (the post when you said about this servers change) that if we continue to have problems, we would let you know it.

I hope you continue to improve the online quality of this site. Thanks.
